LibriVox recording of A Strange Disappearance by Anna Katharine Green

Anna Katharine Green (November 11, 1846 – April 11, 1935) was an American poet and novelist. She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories (no doubt assisted by her lawyer father).

Subject: Great mystery story, spotty reading
This story has a great plot that keeps you interested the whole time with plenty of twists and turns. The Leavenworth Case made me a fan of AKG, but now this book has made me a devotee. For the well constructed story and the finely written narrative, this book rates 5 stars.

However, the reading of the story is not as consistently good or as consistently audible. This is basically the problem you run into with collaborative books, however. You take a chance there may be a reader or two whom you don't like. I experienced that in this book, and the volume level was also a problem in those cases, to the point where I had to put my headphones in to be able to hear what was being said. I also downloaded the text file to follow along when I got to those "troublesome" chapters where I couldn't quite make out what was being said sometimes. I think the majority of the reading merits a 4, but it's brought down to a 3 because, if you can't hear the audio or understand what words are being said, what's the point of it being an audiobook?

I still highly recommend that you listen to this story because it's worth it, just be prepared for the vast differences in readers.

What a great mystery writer! Keeping the surprises coming right up to the end, she kept me listening until the end without a break. I enjoy her precise writing very much. There was some unevenness in the readers but it was obvious that each was giving their best.

Subject: Not a bad story...
A woman is reported as missing by the housekeeper of a well-to-do man. The housekeeper is extremely worried about the missing woman, even though she is a mere seamstress.

As the investigation continues, it becomes apparent to the investigators that the missing woman is more than just a seamstress, and that she went willingly with her kidnappers for some reason. Who is she, and why was she kidnapped?

The story is a little bit slow at first, which I think is due to some VERY poorly read chapters and background noises. However, if you stick it out, it is worth it.

Drop the treble on your equalizer to filter them out and up the base a bit.

Subject: Love this mystery
This is one of those mystery stories that keeps you guessing. It is read by different readers, I think they were all pretty good except of course the horrible Lucy Burgoyne but she only reads a few chapters.
